PREFACE 



" Few familie3 in the country hâve \been more- ^eTëHHCteé-4iia 1 ûL____j i 
the Cushing3, and probably no other one ha3 furnished more 
Judges for our Probate, Municipal, and Suprême Court3. In ail 
its branches it has been highly respectable, and it still maintains 
its ancient standing." — Hislory of Hanover, Mass., by J. S. Barry, 
Boston, 1853. High praise, but by no means undeserved, as the 
merest glance down the " bead roll of famé," as imperfectly tran- 
scribed in this work, will convince the most sceptical. The Genea- 
logyofthe Cushing Family forms of itself almo3t a synopsis of 
the colonizing and early settlement of the New England States 
and a portion at least of the Province of Québec, and by that 
best and purest of its stock, the Puritans. Hère we read, as in 
a history, the mode of settlement ; the organization of local and 
gênerai offices for the proper and regular administration, civil 
and military, of the affairs of the colonies ; the origin of the causes 
which led to the mémorable struggle for Independence of the 
British Colonies in America ; the difficultés to be contended with 
in the re-organization of the affaira of the young nation, its laws 
and goverument. In the halls of the Législature, in the adminis- 
tration of the laws, in the arena of commerce and in ail the reli- 
\ gious controversies of the times in which they lived, the members 
.; of this remarkable family appear almost pre-eminent.

ed the births and marriages of the colonists, makes it a matter of no 
great difficulty in tracing the descendants of the early settlers down 
to at least the middle of the eighteenth century ; and from the ex- 
ceptionally prominent part taken in ail public matters by members

of this family, their descent can be traced by nearly if not ail of 
the name to the présent day. fhe work now sent forth is, for 
aught the author knows, the tiret is3aed with any pretensions to a 
gênerai genealogical record. It is necessaril y iu complète in many 
of its détails, and many preciou3 fragments remain in his hands, 
for lack of the necessary links to connect them with the rest of 
the chain. 

Some explanation is due for the appearance of this work in such 
small type and the unnecessary crowding of some of the families 
together. The original intention of the compiler had been simply 
to print in order T for his own personal convenience, a voluminous 
mass of manuscript memoranda, the resuit of se ver al years desul- 
tory collection. The work assumed such proportions, that he was 
induced to expend considérable extra efforts to ensure such com- 
pleteness as might be possible, without attempting to hâve any 
altération of the type originally selected, and in^which the greater 
portion had already been set up. Of the many who hâve rendered 
valuable assistance, spécial mention must be made of Daniel 
Cushing, Esq., of Lowell, Mass. ; Chas. W. Cushing, Esq., of 
South Hingham (who kindly furnished copies of the Hingham and 
Scituate Records) and Hon. TheophilusH. Cushing, of Winterport, 
Me. The »« Willis collection " of the Portland, Me., Public Library, 
and the invaluable Library of " Tue New England Historical and 
Genealogical Society," of Boston, hâve furnished much valuable 
information, and a list of the principal works to which référence 
was thus had is appended.

INTRODUCTION. 




THEearliest authentic record of the Cushing Family, from which 
an unbroken descent can be traced, is found in several Deeds and 
Charters, bearin g date from 1466 to 1480, which are now in pos- 
session of the Steward of the Manors therein named in Hard- 
ingham and Hingham, (County of Norfolk, England,) which at 
that time and for several générations belonged to the family. 

Some explenations and information respecting the name, 
arms, &c, and of the heraldic termsused in describing the latter, 
will not be amiss, particularly to those who may not hâve within 
reacb any one of the many works on the subject. 

NAME. 

The name spelled Cusheyn and otherwise is found prior to the 
year 1400, and in the "Ulster Journal of Archœ." No. 2, there is 
the following v. Cushion, " (County Limerick and elsewhere,) a 
corruption of MacOssian. It is otherwise written Cusbin and 
Cussen and Anglicized to Cousins, but pronounced Cuzzeen." 

Among the New England Records the name is variously 
spelled " Cushin," " Cushan " and "Cushing." In a " List of First 
settlers of New England," by S. G. Drake, is found the name 
" Jeremiah Cushin, Boston, juror, 1680," and among the signa- 
tures to a certificate dated Hingham, the 7 February, 1708-9, to 
the righteous life and character of one Mehetabel Warren, of 
Plymouth, acciised of witchcraft, are found the following : — 
"Daniel Cushing," " Elizabeth Cushing," u Matthew Cushing," 
u Deborah Cushing," " Théo. Cushing." 

ARMS AND HERALDIC TERMS. 

Arms were originally assumed as military ensigns, and the 
greater nobility occasionally granted badges resembling or 
remodelled from them to their dependents. Armoriai ensigns were 
frequently assigned by the Crown to such as were gentlemen of 
blood and had sigoalized themselves in tournament or battle.

ta^ 5 » 



INTRODUCTION. 




Arms were no sooner esteemed as incontrovertible évidence of 
honor and blood, than applications to the Crown for grants of 
arms became so constant tbat the King appointed two Provincial 
Rings of arms to grant ensigns armoriai within their respective 
provinces, under the authority of the Earl Marshal. An ordi- 
nance or proclamation was issued during the reign of Henry V. 
inhibiting or forbidding the bearingof arms by any not duly autho- 
rized so to do, but, in total disregard of this royal ordinance, a mul- 
tiplicity of abuses, irrégularités and disorders were found to hâve 
crept into ail matters appertaining to descent and arms, in consé- 
quence whereof commissions were issued under the Great Seal to 
the two Provincial King3 of Arms, authorizing and commanding 
each by himself or his deputy to visit the whole of hi3 province 
as often as he should deem it necessary ; to convene before him 
ail those who bore, or assumed to bear arms and were styled 
esquires and gentlemen, and to cause them to produce and show 
by what authority and right they challenged and claimed the 
said use of arms. In pursuance of this royal commission, the 
circuits of the Kings of Arms, called Visitations, commenced 
about the beginning of the sixteenth century. The Visitations 
occurred once about every thirty years. The Heralds' Visitations 
are preserved as a book of record, and those who are enabled to 
deduce descent from an ancestor whose armoriai ensigns bave 
been acknowledged in any of the Visitations are entitled to carry 
those arms by right of inheritance. 

Burkï's "General Armory." 

The Shield is distinguished by certain armoriai colors called 
Tinctures, separated by division lines and chargea with a variety 
of animais, which themselves bear the désignation of charges. 
The Tinctures used in heraldry are metals, colors and furs. 

Of the metals, or means gold, and known in uncolored draw-, 
ings and engravings by dots or points. 

Of the colors, azuré means blue, and is depicted by horiz- 
ontal lines; sable means black, and is depicted by cross lines, 
horizontal and perpendicular ; Gules means red, and is depicted 
by perpendicular lines. 

The term Quartbrly means the field or -charge divided into 





INTRODUCTION. 




four equal parts by two lines, one perpendicnlar, the other hori- 
zontal. 

The Bbnd is formed by two Unes drawn diagonally from left 
to right, and comprises the third part of the shield. It represents 
a shoulder belt or scarf. 

The Canton, derived from cantonnée, cornered, is less than the 
quarter, comprising only the third part of the chief, and is formed 
by a perpendicnlar line drawn from the top of the shield meeting 
another drawn horizon tally from the side. The Canton always 
occupies the upper left hand corner of the escutcheon, unless 
otherwise expreised. 

Chkqur or Cheqdy is used when the field or any armoriai 
charge is divided by transverse lines, perpendicularly and horizon- 
tally, into equal parts or squares alternately of différent tinctures 
like a chess-board. On ordinaries chequy must consist of at 
least three ranges of square pièces. 

Birds, when spread open, with both wings stretched out and 
their breasts seen, are said to be displayed. 

Gamb, the whole foreleg of a lion or other beast ; if couped or 
erased near the middle joint, it is then only a paw. 

Burke's " General Armory." 

" By an * heiress ' is not necessarily implied an inheritrix of 
landed or other property. A lady is an heiress when she is the 
sole issue of any gentleman bearing arms, and Co-heiress (which 
in Heraldry is équivalent to Heiress), when she hast other sisters, 
but no brother." 

14 Handbook of Heraldry " by John E. Cussans. 

CUSHING ARMS. 

The Cushing Arms are first found in the Heraldic Visitation of 
the County of Norfolk, England, made in the year 1563, in which 
the marriage is givea of John Oldham of Shimpling, Norfolk, with 
Elizabeth, (stated to be daughter and heir of Francis Cushin, of 
flingham, Norfolk,*) and are described as follows: 

11 Gules, an eagle displayed argent quartering gules, three right 
hands torn from the wrists, a canton chequery, or and az." 

* There is not a single date in the pedigree, but as no issue of the 
marriage is mentioned it was probnbly not long before that date. The 
 " Francis Cushin " mentioned was doubtless the great grandson of John 
5 III. in" " ' ^

the line of his eldest son John. (See Genealogy .) 





INTRODUCTION. 




In " Fairbairn'8 Crests of Great Britain and Ireland," vo. 
Cussans or Cussons, th?re appears the following: An eagle dis- 
played, gu., armed and langued, az., (onbreast abend,ar., charged 
withthree fleur-de-lis, sa) Dura spiro spero. 

Burkb, in his " General Armory of England, Scotland and 
Ireland," says v. Cussans, " (Jamaica; granted 1767) or, an eagle 
displayed gu. in chief, two barrulets az., Crest. An eagle dis- 
played, gu., charged on the brea3t with a bend ar. thereon three 
fleurs-de-lis sa." 

The " Herald ic Journal," No. 1, Jan. 1865, has the following 
description of the Oushing Arms and Crest, which isthe one found 
in what is kncwn'as " The Gore Roll of Arms" being a collection 
of the Arms of New England Farailies made during the last cen- 
tury, supposa to be by Samuel Gore, and previous to 1750. 

* Arms — Quarterly 1 and 4, an eagle displayed 2 and 3, two 
dexter hands, open, couped, a canton chequery. Crest— two 
bear's paws, holding a ducal coronet, from which is suspended a 
heart." 

In the Appendix to " Copp's Hill Burial Grounds," by J. S. 
Loring, the following is given as the Arms of the Cushing family : 

" Quarterly gu. and an Eagle argent, gules, three right hands 
somewhat torn, a canton chequery or and az 1563." 

CRESTS AND MOTTOES. 
Crests maybe assumed by ail whoconsider themselresentitled 
legally to bear arms. 

Mottoes may be taken, changed, varied or relinquished as 
often as the bearer thinks fit ; and may, with impunity to the 
assumer, be the same as is used by other families. 

" Introduction to fleraldry," by Hugh Clarke. 
" Mottoes are not strictly hereditary. An individual is at 
liberty to affix to his escutcheon whatever motto his fancy may 
dictate." 

" Handbook of Heraldry," by John E. Cussans. 

CUSHING CREST. 

A crown supported by two gambs, from which is suspended 
a heart resting on a wreath and helmet. 

The motto virtute et numine (by valorand divine aid,) appears 
to be the only one adopted by any of the members of the Cushing 
family.

were raised to the degree of Barrister.* He was for a 
time Attorney General of Mass. ; in 1768, was appoint 
ed the first Judge of Probate in Lincoln County, and 
in 1772 made Judge of the Superior Court. At the 
réorganisation of the Superior Court, Mass., 1777, he 
wasappointed Chief Justice ofthe Court, the first who 
held the office under the free Government of the Com- 
monwealtb and labored with great success in establish- 
inç the Judicial System on a firm basis. He became Judge 
ofthe Suprême Judicial Court, 1782. Atthe beginuing 
ofthe Kevolution, he alone, among the high in office 
supported the rights of the Revolutionists. He was the first 
Chief Justice ofthe State under the Constitution of 178S, 
and atthe organization of the U. S. Government in 1789 
he was selected by Washington as an Associate Justice of 
the United States Suprême Court, in which office he emi - 
nently sbone. While Associate Judge, he was accompauied 
in bis circuit by Mrs. Cusbing; he drove a phœton and 
a pair of horses and was followed by bis negro man 
" Prince " on borseback. During the mission of Chief 
Ju3tice John Jay, Envoy Extraordinary to the Court of

ginning of his second term as Président, 4 March 1793. 
In 1796. after Judge Jay's résignation, he was nominated 
by Washington to the Chief Justice's office and this 
offer was unanimously confirmed by the Senate. Nothing 
but a confidence in his ability and in his unshaken inte- 
grity could hâve united contending parties on that 
occasion; but notwithstanding this extraordinary ex- 
pression of confidence, he declined the office on account 
of inflrm health, but continued on the bench until 
1810, when he had prepared an instrument of résignation, 
but was caiied to resign life. He was a man of tall and

dignified présence, and as he moved along the streets with 
his cocked hat, bush wig and small clothes, he made an 
imposihg appeàrance which attracted gênerai attention 
He waâ tbô last Chiet Justice who Wore the large wig of 
the English Judges. His oratofy Was ready and flowing, 
toot of that overawing description with which some 
native orators of more fiery mould hâve transported au- 
diences, but its excellence consisted in Cool deliberate 
Judgraent and logical and lucid argumentation which 
gave him eventually an advantage over those of more 
ardent tempérament. He had a felicity of manner and an 
unblemished dignity of character whioh enabled him to 
be opeo and décisive without kindling the rage of oppo- 
sition. As a Judge he was eminently qualified by bis 
learning and not less by his unshaken ïntegrity and delibe- 
rate temper. It issaid of him in 1801, that he performcd 
the duties of his hlgh office ,With order and perspicuity 
and guided the bar with mild, though commanding dig- 
nity. In private life he was ail that was amiable, always 
ready to instruct by useful discourse and 10 make his 
friends happy by his cheerfulness. He diligently collected 
Works of taste and (if we may judge by the numerous notes 
written with his own hand in margins) he read with the 
greatest care. In 1788 he was Vice- Président of the Mass. 
Convention; was a founder and member of the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was a learned theo- 
rogian, well acquainted with the controversies of the day 
and though far from gathering heat in those contro- 
versies, was conspicuousiy on the side of libéral Chris- 
tianity* As an exemplary Christian, he was irreproach- 
able, and as a public character, he is universally acknowl- 
edged to hâve stood in the Ûrst rank of his countrymen, 
with Washington and Adams and Henry and Jefferson, 
either in times ot awful hazard or in times of those prodi- 
gious civil labors which laid the foundations of the coun-

object of the Americans is said to be " to adorn the brows 
of Mr. Cushing with a diadem. " He was the devoted friend

chison and others, that produced so great effect at that

H.C. # 1755. Married 25 Aug. 1768 Elizabeth, sister of Gov. 
Sumner. He was bred to the law and appointed first Sheriff of 
Lincoln Co. which office he held both before and during 
the Révolution, as also for many years after. He resided 
at Pownalboro' and in 1776, when the Maine Militia was 
re-organized, was appointed to command the Eastern 
Régiment, with the title of " Colonel." He made himself 
especially obnoxious to the loyalists by his vigilance in the 
discharge of his dulies as sheriff and military officer, and 
towards the close of the war, in 1781, he (then a Brigadier 
General) was seized at night by a loyalist party under John 
Jones, a violent Tory, taken frora his bed, compelled to 
hurry on his clothes and was carried away to the British 
Army at Castine, where he was retained for sometime as a 
*prisoner. His functions as Sheriff and Brigadier General 
seem to hâve ceased soon after this time when he removed 
to Boston and he next appears as Clerk of the Courts in 
Suffolk and Nantucket Counties (Suprême Court?) in 1783, 
which office he held to his death, 17 Nov. 1810. The fact of 
his occupying responsible public stations from the âge of 26 to 
his death continuously,both under the royal and republican 
governments, a period of 50 years, is sufficient proof of his 
ability, faithfulness and integrity. fle was a gentleman 
worthy of his distinguished ancestors. His wife died 31 May 
1817.
